It's begging for a remake.
I haven't seen the 1995 remake, but I'm surprised it hasn't been remade again. The worship of beauty and the drive to attain it and avoid aging (death) at any cost is possibly stronger than ever today. Someone with a decent script could make a good horror film / social commentary movie out of this.

While I can't claim to be as academic and knowledgeable as most of the reviewers I have read, I can say that this piece was not without its charms. I do not expect an old horror movie on the campy side to be a blockbuster, but it was great fun. I love the 'monster' costume, I had to pause it and grab my husband to look when the monster finally made her appearance, and he agreed; it was one of the most interesting (for lack of a better vocabulary) creations he'd ever seen. He actually asked me to start it over so he could watch the whole thing, and was as delighted as I was. If you are expecting high art, enlightenment, or a masterpiece, this is not for you. If you are looking for some light enjoyment for a boring rainy afternoon, try this one out!

Grab the popcorn and a can of wasp spray. Corny but funny B flick to watch. Thanks for the upload of this classic. +1

Good fun Corman flick
Pretty slow, compared to modern movies, but fun enough to watch once, if you like corny old sci-fi.
I downloaded the Ogg Video and the MPEG4. Both looked and sounded about the same, although I only watched the MPEG4 from beginning to end. The video was adequate (you don't really need hi-def for something like this). The sound was a little fuzzy; I couldn't quite make out a few lines of dialogue.

Sure, it's a stupid movie, but it's a lot of fun.

1959 was a good year for monsters!
It is just what you expect from a 1959 monster movie. I just enjoy the heck out of these films!

It is what it is
Why do people come here to watch old campy movies and then complain about them? I have been downloading and watching movies from various movie sites for the last year of every genre. Most of the movies are in the 1999 to 2008 range. I have kept on the average only 1 out of 25 movies. You would think that with all the money and special effects that these modern movies would be better than that and yet I have kept 99% of all the movies that I have downloaded from Archive. Just watch the movies for what they were meant to be with all its faults, old fashioned effects and black and white frames. Stop complaining.
This film is crap. It's really crappy crap. It's crappy crap which is crap.

I was about 9 years old when this flick aired late one Friday night on 'Science Fiction Theature.' It was forbidden to watch for reasons my parents knew about but dumb little kids had to find out the hard way; the old man was sleeping in front of the TV so I sneaked in to enjoy a forbidden treat.....after watching this movie, it scared me so badly I couldn't sleep for three days....in retrospect. the flick is really lame but back then all my pucker parts were pretty tight for a few days after seeing 'The Wasp Woman.' Still gives me shivers.

I thought the real intensity came when the woman would sneak into the lab and shoot herself up.

This is a one of the great B-films from this era, and should be looked at, if only for the talents of the lead actress, Susan Cabot. This is director Roger Corman at his B-movie best.

didn't like this one, just didn't catch me.

Not good or bad enough...
Not good enough to watch, nor bad enough to be a cult classic. Maybe MST3K could make this watchable. Some of the worst special effects ever. This, and a good dose of sugar, may keep pre-pubescent kids entranced enough to sit in front of it.

It's Actually 'The Wasp Woman' not 'Women'
There are no plurality of Wasp creatures in this film, just the one!
Great fun flick by the way! It's trashy, campy fun! It's really interseting to see Michael Marks, longtime veteran of the classic Universal horror days (He was Maria's dad in the original 'Frankenstein'), play such a big role!
